So, I'm not happy with my weight. My doc suggested weight watchers, with the comment that I do eat well, but I'm getting "hidden sources of fat and sugar. " I've got about 40lbs I would like to lose. Counting calories is dandy, but it's kinda hard since I don't really eat a lot of foods with a label on them. I'm stuck on what's good, bad, right, wrong. Like my work. My workplace has a freaking fantastic cafeteria...which is part of the problem. So many options. Even for breakfast. I can choose the buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrown squares, regular hashbrowns, hashbrowns with peppers and onions,breakfast sandwiches, bagels, muffins, breakfast burritos, french toast, pancakes. They also have the yogurt bar, with oatmeal, "All natural vanilla yogurt", "Low fat Michigan fruit yogurt" (has cherries and strawberries in it), almonds, wheat germ, granola, fresh fruit, craisins, and pumpkin seeds. What is the right choice????! My mom does weight watchers and I can start going to meetings with her. Sparkpeople is online (and free). Of course, it doesn't help my husband can eat like a horse, and likes traditional home meals.....like tonight - venison with onions and gravy, corn, and homemade mashed potatoes. How do I calculate those???
